My Granny used to bake a special cake for my dad which she called “Bo’s Cake“. A spicy and moist cake filled with yummy Lingonberry jam. Perfect for Christmas but works all year round for you guys who can’t resist cinnamon, ginger, cloves and Lingonberry jam. 😀 If you find it hard to find Lingonberry jam, just go the food section at IKEA. 😀
Recipe (makes 12 slices)
- 4 1/2 dl plain flour
- 3 dl granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon ginger
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon cloves
- 2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
- 5 tablespoons milk powder
- 1 1/2 dl lingonberry jam
- 1 dl melted butter
- 2 dl water
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C.
Grease and line a small loaf tin.
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a medium sized bowl.
Melt the butter and allow to cool.
Pour the jam, butter and water into the same bowl as the dry ingredients and mix until everything is just incorporated.
Pour the mixture into the loaf tin and bake towards the bottom of the oven for about 40-45 minutes.
Use a ‘cake tester’ to see if the cake is baked or not.
Happy Bo’s Cake Baking! 😀
